For the first time, my downward spiral took a dip. I felt useless and unable to figure out why.
I eventually began to ask myself questions
Something inside of me knew what the problem was and yet I found it difficult to take notice of it. This feeling empowered me and started to see clarity. r
During the winter months, when the sun is down before dinner time and the weather is bitterly cold (or constantly raining in the case of my adopted city of Seattle), just stepping outside can seem downright unappealing. But spending more time at home doesn’t have to result in a nasty case of cabin fever. Here are a few tips that I’ve found useful for making the most of the chilly season. r
We all have moods which can affect the way our physical body feels (and operates), as well as how we deal with other people and situations. Our moods can affect and infect others. You wouldn’t purposely infect someone with your germs, so why would you infect them with your mood?
Few of us were taught how to self-soothe or manage our undesirable emotions; therefore, few people are able to maintain a steady level of “good” mood all day.
Unfortunately, there are many times throughout the day that when our not-so-good mood can affect the proceedings and the outcome of a situation. The following suggestions can be used before any important event and they can be used when you recognize that you would rather be in a better mood.
Our moods are generated by our thoughts. All the ideas below will get you out of your head, and into your body, specifically, your vibrational body or spirit.
They will also get you out of the past where sadness and anger live and out of the future where fear and anxiety live. Each one will bring you into the present moment where there is nothing but peace.
The two main moods we generally wish to get out of are stressed moods (anxious, fearful, frustrated, overwhelmed, and angry) and sad moods. We can then choose to calm our mood or to uplift it.
Dwelling in a depressed, anxious or angry mood is unhealthy for your physical and vibrational bodies. We are energy bodies, and we vibrate and resonate, therefore, our moods have a tone. Change the tone, change the mood.
You can change your tone through any of your senses; however, I don’t recommend using your sense of taste, as it can lead to overeating. You can also change your tone by using high-frequency thoughts, words and actions.
Like a nervous alcoholic attending their first AA meeting, I stand before you and say, “Hi, my name is Dave, and I suffer from depression.”
In my early twenties I was diagnosed with a mild form of depression. I’m sure if depression were a more talked about subject, I would have been diagnosed years earlier, but because it was still had some stigma around it, I just hid my struggles. I thought I was a smart guy, and that if I just focused hard enough I could control my feelings. Finally when the doctor talked to me about the test results he had run on me, and prescribed anti-depressants, I realized that maybe it was something that was stronger than I was. r
Have you ever looked at an ant under a microscope?
Alien-like antennae, creepy multi-jointed hairy legs, and huge jagged pincher-jaws fill up your vision and make you want to get away.
Then you look at the ant with your naked eye and find yourself asking, “How was I ever afraid of that? It’s tiny.” r
